Join us for a presentation from MULTISAR (Multiple Species at Risk) to explore Alberta’s priority species at risk, their monitoring program, as well as enhancements done for species at risk in southern Alberta. MULTISAR is an important organization that reflects the efforts of multiple partners working towards conserving Species at Risk through habitat stewardship, while maintaining viable ranching operations in Alberta’s native grasslands. The MULTISAR program gives ranchers and farmers suitable tools to continue this tradition in modern times. To date, this collaboration between agencies and landholders has resulted in the voluntary stewardship of grassland species on over 382,000 acres in southern Alberta.
